crafts. The park is west of Mayport Road at Dutton Island Road. See more pictures of the event

Those were some of the improvements proposed
Thursday during an annual meeting of the Friends of
the Beaches Branch Library (FOBBL). Members met
with Barbara Gubbin, director of the Jacksonville
Public Library system, dunng the public meeting.
"We clearly need to develop the next long range
plan," said Gubbin, who came to the system in
January 2005 to help develop a plan to build and ren-
WVhile JPL is working on fostering improvements,
the FOBBL members said they want to see some
changes in the Beaches library.
Some suggestions from participants at the meeting
included more books in the browsing areas, later
library hours and maintenance to the facility itself.
Additional library hours are a significant concern
and Gubbin said it is something her staff is working
on, and that the hours should be changed within the
next calendar year.
"We've heard loud and clear from people that nine
o'clock hour is really important," Gubbin said in
response to concerns expressed that many groups
who use the library relied on the later hour.
Currently the library closes at 8 p.m., which limits
some civic groups from meeting in the conference

Baptist Beaches cardiac rehab clan

at the Beaches - who call
themselves the Grateful

approximately 15 members is
"They have figured out that
life is short and we're not here
forever on this planet,"
Holloway-Smith said in a
recent telephone interview.
The attitude exhibited by the
group's members, she said, is
this: "Let's make each day
count. Let's appreciate each
other. Let's focus on the impor-
tant things in life."

were to become the Grateful

City planners opted to combine plans for a

and preserve more open space at the 10.5-
acre South Beach Park.
"A dollar here and a dollar there. Soon you
are talking about real money," Planning and
Development Director Steve Lindorff said.
"[That's why] we finally honed in on putting
such a facility out at South Beach park."
Adding the administrative function to the

deemed more cost effective than tearing

Nease coaches appeal FHSAA ruling
by LAURA FOWLER
Two Nease High School assistant football coach-
es fired this month for recruiting violations have
appealed, saying the Florida High School Athletics
Association's ruling should be overturned.
The appeal claims that an FHSAA commission-
er found the student in question had not been'
recruited "but found that illegal recruiting
occurred at Nease." ' .
Meanwhile, the principal of Nease said that"
although the school will not appeal the FHSAA
ruling, it will appeal the six-year probationary
period before the new Ponte Vedra high school
opens in 2008.
Thomas J. Fraser, the attorney representing the
coaches, said Monday that the conclusions of the
FHSAA investigation are contradictory because
the association ruled that the football player
involved was in fact eligible to play. :
"In my mind. it seems fairly inconsistent,"
Fraser said in a telephone interview.- ,

The Leader's Opinion
The year that is drawing toward its close has been filled with
the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies...
President Abraham Lincoln
October 3, 1863
So begins Liricoln's invitation to all Americans to spend:
a Thursday in November giving thanks and praise.
Fortunately, those words are still apt.
Lincoln's proclamation came during the Civil War as he
sought ways to unite a divided nation. Some states had
been observing Thanksgiving for many years. -- dating
back to a harvest celebratory feast in 1621 at Plymouth
Colony , ' , ; �
In 1939, another president got involved with the holi-
day when Franklin Delano Roosevelt set Thanksgiving for"
the third Thursday in November - assuring a long
Christmas shopping season for a financially beleaguered
nation, To quiet some ,of', the, squabbling that ensued,
Congress jointly decreed in 1941 that Thanksgiving
should fall on the fourth Thursday of November.
It still does. The holiday shopping 'season officially
begins Friday, though the warmup began long 'before
Halloween in many stores. ,
The origins of the holiday may not matter during tihe
annual gathering of family and friends around a turkey
carcass and the football games on TV.
But national unity is certainly to be celebrated on this
uniquely American holiday. All it takes to celebrate the
holiday is a good appetite and a sense of appreciation and
� gratitude for blessings both big and small.

Wal-Mart is not wanted in NB
To the editor:
During the past months as
the fight to stop Wal-Mart from
building a Supercenter in NB, a
mere five miles from an existing
one, it has become clear by the
overwhelming quantity of pub-
lished letters, emails to City
Council, and public outcries at
council and board meetings,
that Wal-Mait is not wanted in
The reasons cited are numer-
ous: Traffic, Crime, Increased
Costs to the City, Loss of local
business, and reduced property
values. These negative effects
resonate across America in city
after city where Wal-Mart has
built its dense web of stores.
Anyone doing Internet research
will find site after site and study
after study consistently demon-
strating these negative effects.
No one element however
stands alone in showing the
effects on citizens and local
Wal-Mart is a 'fascinating
dichotomy. It is the classic story
of good and evil. A study of
Wal-Mart's history, business
structure and operation is both'
a great example of entrepre-
neurial business success and a
not so visible insidious and per-
vasive business cancer that
destroys a lot of things in its
path and changes 'our nation
and our daily lives in ways we
may not want in the end.
Do you want to sit back and
accept any change that is thrust
upon you? Or, do you want to
utilize all ways available to have
your voice heard and your
opinion considered on this
issue which is yet concluded?
If, as I, you feel the latter is a
more logical choice, I would
offer four suggestions:
S1. Join with the citizen and
local business action group,
'Atlantic Alliance LLC", and`
attend the' public portion of the
Special Mediation process
between Wal-Mart and the City,
Nov. 30 at 7'p.m. in City Hall.
2. Contact our wonderful
local news media with letters
expressing your opinion and
3. Support City Council's
efforts, with phone' calls, letters
and Emails, to stop or palatably
modify Wal-Mart's plans.' '
4. Volunteer your time to"
help or make a financial contri-.
bution to Atlantic Alliance's
efforts to see that the will of the,
people in NB and AB prevails
on this issue.

Musical computer for older kids now on market
by ZANE BINDER
Corgi USA has introduced a
musical computer for slightly
older children. The Corgi iCar'
plugs right into your iPod (or
similar de\icei and really puts
on a show!
As parents, you might
remember Corgi from your
youth. They're the worldwide
pioneer of collectible die-cast
models and replicas. The
firm's celebrating its 50th
anniversary this year and
coincidentally has entered the
computer age. Picture, if you
will, a 1/24th scale model
Cadillac Escalade sitting atop
what could be a bedside radio.
Just plug in your MP3 player,
CD unit, stereo, PC, iPod or
anything with a standard
headphone jack. Suddenly, the
music Will pour forth from the
car, but it's also designed to
put on a show simultaneously.
The iCar rocks right to left,
front to back and up and
down. Colored lights illumi-
nate the wheel wells, rims,
undercarriage, trunk and
engine areas. Even if you don't
own a portable plug-in musi-
cal device, have no fear. The
iCar has numerous tunes
The iCar runs on six AA bat-
teries or an AC adapter. For
$35, don't expect sound repro-
duction like a top-line
Nakamichi, but it isn't bad. It's
available at Wal-Mart,
Amazon.com, Target and
numerous other retailers. The
iCar is truly unique!
cyberspace with reality isn't
easy. Now Webkinz
(www.webkinz.com), a prod-
uct of Ganz Corporation, has
successfully combined the
two. Ganz has combined a
plush pet (a stuffed animal)
with the Internet in a unique
way. First, you buy one of
their $10 animals, in this
reporter's case, a panda. Then,
using a secret code that comes
with the panda, you log into
the WVebkins site. There you'll
be taken through a 10-minute'
registration process, and final-.
ly, you'll receive an adoption
Your kids will enter a magi-
cal world where thevill feed
and nurture their new pal,
dress it and create rooms for it
to enjoy. You'll also be able to
contact other Webkinz owners
to play games, figure out trivia
quizzes and learn simple
money management. Be
aware, though, the User
Agreement you're mandated
to sign to gain access to
Webkinz World contains lim-
its on your pet's access.
Registration expires in approx-
imately one year, and if you
want to keep your Webkinz
enrollment active, you must
buy a new pet! Ifyou forget
your username or password,
you'll also have a difficult but
not impossible task reactivat-
ing your membership.
The WVebkinz idea is a good
one, but making kids and par-
ents jump through hoops or'
spend additional money to
buy another Webkinz, isn't.
Overall, the iCar and
Webkinz are decent ideas. As
with other toys, check them
carefully before buying. Both
you and your kids will be glad .

Senators fight to nil-all draw with Bears
By TALIA DAHLKE
Friday night's cold weather
couldn't keep Fletcher High
fans from coming out to sup-
port the girls soccer team.
In an eagerly-anticipated,
between two of the area's
powerhouses, Bartram Trail
paid a visit to Jack Taylor
Stadium although the result
left both sides unfulfilled.
The 0-0 final score wasn't
indicative of the back-and-

The talented sophomore,

the team's five games.
The second half was more of
the same - great defense
punctuated by few good scor-
ing chances for either team. .
Bartiam Trail managed three
shots on goal, but Fletcher
goalkeeper Amy Medis came
up big on each attempt.
"Amy is a definitely the
most valuable player in this
game," said Pardue. "She came
off the line and made good
decisions all night."
Although the NM\? for
Fletcher suffered a minor
injury in the second half
when another player collided
into her law. Nedis showed
that pain would not stop her
from doing her best.
"We all stepped it up and
played together as a team,"
she said, referring to Fletcher's
effort throughout the evening.
The Senators were slated to

Any high school football team that
commits three turnovers in the second

the helmets on Thanksgiving week.
Any team, that is, except Nease.

champion Nease (12-0) in the third

No. 9 Seabreeze (9-21 Friday.
"It should have been 42-7 at halftime,
but those turnovers killed us in the first
half," Craig Howard, Nease's fourth-year
head football coach, said after the win,
his team's 21st in a row.
"But we have a philosophy about
turnovers. \Ve tell the kids to flush it,
move on and concentrate on the next
"At halftime, we said we can't have
those turnovers in the second half."
The Panthers, who turned the ball
over three times in a seven-minute
stretch of the second quarter, led 28-14
at the break.
Merritt Island 15-7) closed to within
28-20 with 6:08 to play in the third
quarter after driving 78 yards on 12
The Mustangs were driving for the
potential tying touchdown with 1:37
remaining in the third when Nease safe-
ty Hunter Bates atoned for a first-half
fumble with an interception at the
Panthers 1-yard line.
Nease converted the pick into a 99-
yard scoring drive, re-establishing its
dominance with two more TD drives to
cap the contest.
"If Hunter hadn't intercepted it, they
would have scored and went for the 2-
point conversion to tie," surmised
"That was the turning point. Then we
drove the length of the field and it was
"That 99-yard drive took a lot of the
air out of their sails," added Nease
defensive coordinator Danny Cowgill,
whose unit forced three turnovers, two
in the second half off interceptions.
"Anytime something bad happens, we
tell the boys that everybody makes mis-
takes, but it's how they' respond from
adversity that counts."
Nease also muffed a punt against Lake
City on Oct. 20. The fumble gave the
Tigers a first-and-goal situation.
But Nease strong safety Jared
MacNaught rectified the miscue with a
caused fumble at the Nease 1.
"That's kind of our mental state," said
Bates, a junior whose father, Bill, was
the first NFL player to be named an All-
Pro special teamer in 1984.
"When we get in adverse situations,
we have to put it out of our minds and
make plays. If one person doesn't do his
job, it's a bust."
Nease was all business in the first half,
rushing for 179 yards and passing for
202. Junior quarterback Ted Stachitas
was 13 of 19 passing with a 35-yard
scoring strike to Quinton Huggins (eight
catches, 114 yards).
Stachitas (149 rushing) electrified the
home crowd with a 65-yard TD run with
7:08 gone in the first quarter. The run
put Nease up 14-0.
"On that particular play, Ted made a
great read because we were trying to
throw a screen pass and he saw that
they had it defended," said Howard.
"They had three linebackers floating
right to it so I just took off and there
was a giant gap [in the defense]," added
Stachitas, who finished with 351 all-pur-
"We knew we could pass on them so
we took advantage of that early on.
After my interception, we went back to
Safety Brandon Tuck picked off
Stachitas at the Merritt Island 2, and the
Mustangs scored three plays later on a
58-yard TD pass.
Nease's Chris Johnson (83 yards on 9
carries) fumbled on the Panthers ensu-
ing possession, and Bates muffed a punt
a few minutes later.
The Panthers (568 total yards) also
lost the handle on an onside kick that
Merritt Island converted into a 2-yard
TD run to open the second quarter.
Nease pounded the rock in the second
half behind senior Zach Tronti (118
yards), who scored on runs of 35 and 11
The Panthers booked 15 runs of 10 or
more yards in the game, six by Tronti

FSU can salvage season Saturday against Gators
The road back to lost
glory -- at least the start
of it - comes for Bobby
Bowden Saturday at noon at
Doak Campbell Stadium.
That's when those horrid
Florida Gators come to call in
the biggest game of the sea-
son for the Florida State
Not only does Uncle Bobby
have to win a game to offset
his dismal losing record this
season, but some of the pres-
tige and honor he's lost during
this campaign amid the firing
(?) or resignation (?) of his son.
Jeff Bowden, who struggled as
FSU's offensive coordinator for
what seems like years, gave in
to the howling of wolves- er,
fans - and threw in the towel.,
He did the right thing, as -
painful as it had to be in the
The ineptness of the
Seminoles offense wasn't all
Jeff's .fault, but it might as
well have been. The result was
the same no matter who was
to blame. Arid all that blame
wasn't aimed at son Jeff, one
might imagine. It might.have
been.a thinly-disguised attack
on the eldest Bowden; .
The angry mob might have
been saying, while toting,
E elbow dislocations are

Dislocation of the elbow
is the most common type of
dislocation injury in chil-
dren, and in adults, it is sec-
ond only to shoulder dislo-
The dislocation typically
occurs as the arm bone
(humerusi moves forward
on the' forearm radius and
ulna). This gives the elbow
a grossly misshapen appear-
ance, as the bone at the
back of your elbow, the ole-
cranon, appears much larger
and more prominent.
The elbow is painful to
move, and what little
motion there is, definitely
does not feel normal.
Often the athlete will
come down awkwardly on
the arm as the elbow slips
out of place. Most often
the athlete will have to be
taken to the emergency
room in order to have the
elbow put back in place.
In some cases the elbow
may be put back into place
on the sideline if a physi-
cian is present. . '
One such case occurred
last year when I treated a
nose-tackle who was tripped
and fell to his outstretched
left arm, when his elbow
popped out. He came run-
ning off the field holding
his arm. The elbow was
awkwardly aligned and the'
player was in obvious pairi.
Given the fact that it just
happened, I knew that I
could get him in without
great difficulty or without a
lot of pain to the player.
After an exam to verify
there was no fracture, artery
or nerve injury, we laid him
face down on the sideline
I then pulled some trac-,
tion through his forearm,,
and guided his: elbow back
in place. His pain was

be obtained to verify that
he had no associated frac-

It's that time of year again! -
Yes, it's that time of year -
time to give thanks 'for all
things good that have come
into our lives, time to go
Christmas shopping, time to
decorate our homes for the
season (and hopefully win
the grand prize for the most
creatively decorated house in
the neighborhood) and time
to get our heating systems
serviced and checked.
You read correctly: Now is .,
the time to get the heater '"
serviced and checked. "I
know, I know, it doesn't .:;,
seem to fit in with the rest of
the festivities, but let me
assure you that it does," said With their motto "Fi:
Craig Eddv Jr., who along Air in Atlantic Bead
with his 'wife, Dee, owns ice. Pictured above
Instant Air in Atlantic Beach.
Eddy explains why. "I can almost hear you
ask 'Why? It's just a heater,'" he says. "True, it
is a heater, but would it be 'just a 'heater' if it
decided to break down in the middle of the
coldest night of the year? Of course it
wouldn't be! Because if ihat happened then it
would no longer be 'just a heater' but anoth-
er challenge to be addressed among a million
other challenges during a very busy holiday
season. And, to top it all off, you liave fami-
ly staying with you (read: in-faws) who may
get a little antsy'because they're cold."
Eddy offers some additional food for
thought that may debunk the "it's just a
heater" comment. Did you know you and
your family's safety coufd be compromised?
"I challenge you to research and find news
stories relating to how a house may have
burned down or how a family may have been
sent to the hospital poisoned by carbon
monoxide- all due to a poorly maintained
heating system that isn't working properly,"
That's where the professionally trained,
background-checked and drug-tested comfort
specialists at Instant Air can help, according
to Eddy. They have in their arsenal two types
pf the most comprehensive services offe.red.at
the Beaches designed to alert you, the con-
cerned homeowner, to any potential hazards
or breakdowns - before they happen!
The first is a Safety Inspection, which is a
general, comprehensive inspection of your
system and is free to all Silver Club Instant Air
members. The second is a Super Tune-Up,
which is not only a safety inspection but also
a thorough cleaning of your system. It
includes a cleaning of the blower wheel,
blower housing and the evaporator coil. And
xed Fast, Fixed Right@," the comfort specialists at Emory Instant
h are dedicated to providing Beaches customers top-notch serv-
are owners Eddy and Dee.
- something Instant Air added to its Super
Tune-Up just this year - it also includes an
inspection of ductiwork for any potential air
leaks. The Super Tune-Up is free to all Gold
Club Instant Air members.
"Instant Air, like all businesses, is always
striving to improve and grow," said Eddy.
"That's why we added the inspection of thie
ductwork to our Super Tune-Up, not to men-
tion the fact that all homes will lose 20 to 40
percent of conditioned air due to improperly
Eddy also said that in an effort to better
serve their clients and Club Members Instant
Air has added an exclusive after-hours secret
service number. When asked what it was Eddv
said with a smile, "If I told you then it would-
n't be 'secret' anymore!" But he did say that
it's exclusive to Club Instant Air (CIA) mem-
bers and that if they ever did have a challenge
with their systems. after hours, on weekends
or holidays, all they have to do is call the
secret number to talk to live person,
Stay tuned for the plans Instant Air has for
the new year. But for right now Eddy and Dee
are enjoying the season and want you to have
~Irpule- ad. vyorry-fr.ee holiday season. And
they wish you a safe and healthy Christmas
and a Happy New Year.
